Sliding wardrobe doors – Internal door design ideas not just for the bedroom!

When most people think of sliding wardrobe doors they probably picture them in bedrooms, but with a little imagination there is no reason why they can't be used as Jaw-dropping Interior doors throughout the home. Bathrooms, kitchens, hallways, living rooms, lofts, on landings, even within garages, let your creative design ideas flow. Here are a few of our own internal door design ideas to get you started.

If you would like to discuss your own design ideas with us to see how our sliding wardrobe doors could be just the thing to add stylish unique door features in your home then please call Freephone 0800 035 1730 today.

In fact, wherever there is an alcove or corner that could be converted into a design feature or useful storage space, sliding wardrobe doors offer an ideal design and storage solution.

Kitchens - Sliding larder cupboard door idea

Kitchen - Sliding larder cupboard

The creation of a larder cupboard in the kitchen is becoming increasingly popular. Using a sliding door arrangement is an ideal solution to maximise space whilst minimising the amount of access area required.

With a one finger swish, open your full height larder door for easy access to all those bottles, tins and jars that are hidden behind a stylish door design.

Sliding doors can be used in the kitchen environment but you will need to take into consideration the materials that are used to construct the doors. We would recommend an aluminium framed door as opposed to steel. Aluminium retains its condition despite repeated floor mopping, splashes, drips and spills.

If you have Egger or Kronospan manufactured wood effect panels within your kitchen simply provide us with the product reference code and we will provide you with sliding door panels to match your kitchen cabinet doors.

The kitchen shown here features a bespoke sliding door design incorporating beige and black glass with a specially sourced MFC wood effect panel.

Landings – Create a new storage space idea

Landing - Sliding wardrobe doors

If you have a large landing area that isn't being fully utilised why not think about adding sliding doors? 'Hey presto' you have created valuable storage space. The landing shown here has been converted into useful storage for coats, shoes and anything else that needs to be hidden away. Because this installation was in a household with a young family they chose to use matte white wood for the panels rather than glass with a 2 door, 3 panel equal split door design (Milano Collection) in a silver aluminium frame.

Equally you could add a colour panel door design which can add visual impact at the top of the stairs in what may be typically an otherwise neutral toned part of the house.

Hallways – Design your clean & tidy entrance idea

Hallway - Sliding wardrobe doors

Is your hallway constantly cluttered with coats, shoes, boots, bags, children’s toys, skateboards etc? Sliding doors are the ideal solution to hide all that mess! This hallway shows a wide 2 sliding door storage cupboard housing plenty of shelving, coat hooks, shoe and boot racks. The doors themselves feature a 3 horizontal panel design with striking white glass in the top and bottom panels and black glass in the centre panels, all within a silver steel frame.

Garages – A simple (but brilliant) design idea

Garage - Sliding doors

Yes, even garages lend themselves to having sliding door storage areas within them! Sliding doors can easily be opened without the prospect of adding a scratch or dent 'design feature' on your car door or bumper. At the same time they will hide away all your tools, golf clubs and clutter.

As with kitchens we recommend the use of aluminium frames as the air in most garages will hold moisture content and be subject to extremes of temperature, which can cause condensation. The solution shown features a 2 door, 3 panel equal split design along the side wall with matte white and matte black wood panels.

If the side wall is not suitable then simply consider creating your storage design across the full width at the back of the garage.

Bath in the bedroom – With clever sliding room divider design idea

Bathroom - Sliding room divider

If you like the idea of a bath in your bedroom but don't want to go quite as far as the complete bed/bath open plan room design then a sliding room divider provides a stylish choice of open plan or privacy according to your mood.

Sliding doors used as room dividers are shown here between the bath and bedroom. In any bathroom environment, due to condensation and the chance of water splashes we recommend that you use an aluminium frame. This sliding room divider uses a single runner which is set into the floor; the top track has been built into a bespoke pelmet. The door design is from our Verona Collection and features orange and beige glass panels.

Living rooms – Add drama with colourful door designs idea

Living room - sliding cupbaord doors

Used in the right space sliding doors can create a stunning focal point in a living room. They can be used to hide away everyday clutter but also offer great storage options for books or CD collections and also TVs, music systems or gaming consoles.

The striking design shown here is from our Modena collection (3 panel narrow band) and features black glass top and bottom with a narrow pink band in the middle, all within a silver steel frame. The vibrant colours add drama to the otherwise predominantly white scheme.

Lofts – Storage for awkward unusable spaces idea

Loft - Sliding wardrobe doors

Sliding wardrobe doors are perfect for use in loft conversions to convert those awkward areas such as under eaves into usable storage space. The 3 door matte white design shown here is from our Como Collection and uses silver steel frames.

Bedrooms – The original idea

Let’s not forget that we also do sliding wardrobe doors for bedrooms.
